Yes, you need a subframe

There are manufactors for aftermarket race subframes. I just picked one up for the RR (I'm a mod junky). It helps eliminate some of the electronics, the battery tray, and makes it a little lighter. Another plus to them is they're usually tubular in construction. That makes the easier (no guarantees) to repair in the event of a get off.

bike will improve with the removal of this part.
however, if you REALLY want to keep the bike from being so slow, remove the throttle movement actuation nut!!!!

Just the back part right? No, you dont need it since you can still attach your undertail plastics piece.



That can be fixed though

Throttle movement actuation nut = the rider!!!!

Its not the subframe. It is the little aluminum piece at the end of it.

And nevermind, cuz I do need it. No way to secure tail piece without it.

that looks like the piece that would normally act as the latch plate for your "trunk"

Oh, my bad, Dilly.

Glad you're up/about today, man.

You may look up on Yoyodyne's website to see if there's an alternative. Then maybe scope the WERA to find a suitable used piece.

Good luck, man

Amen, brutha.

If zip-ties, safety wire, or duct tape won't fix it... it's not repairable.

Yep! Zipties FTW! Bubby broke that piece on my bike and we ziptied it back together along with my tail section and it has been fine ever since. And it has taken a beating with Trevor and Jason riding it!
